Mattel Offers Grants for Programs Serving Children in Need

"Mattel and the Mattel Children's Foundation have announced the third year of the company's Domestic Grantmaking Program. Through the program, U.S. charitable organizations that can demonstrate they directly serve children in need may be eligible for one-year grants of $5,000 to $20,000 each. Funds may be applied to programs or general operating costs.

To be eligible, applicant organizations must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. If an organization is a project under a fiscal sponsor, that sponsor must have a valid tax-exempt status. Organizations must serve children in communities within the U.S.; have a mission that focuses on the direct service of children up to the age of 12; be able to demonstrate creative and/or innovative methods to address locally defined need directly impacting children; have an annual operating budget of less than $1 million; and not be affiliated in any way with a national organization, regardless of whether funds are received from the national entity.

Applicant organizations or programs must align with Mattel's philanthropic priorities: 1) Learning, increasing access to education for underserved children, and in particular innovative strategies designed to promote and address literacy; 2) Health, supporting the physical health and well-being of children, with particular emphasis on promoting healthy, active lifestyles; and 3) Girl Empowerment, promoting self-esteem in young girls up to the age of 12.

Two types of grants will be considered: 1) program-specific grants for the launch of new programs or the expansion of existing programs; and 2) core operating support." Deadline: June 15.
